The European Publishers Award for Photography is a major initiative to encourage the publication of contemporary photography.

Open to photographers world-wide, the competition is a unique collaboration between six European Publishers – Actes Sud (France), Apeiron (Greece), Dewi Lewis Publishing (Great Britain), Edition Braus (Germany), Lunwerg Editores (Spain), and Peliti Associati (Italy).

The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project. The winning project is then published in book form simultaneously by each of the six publishers in their own country and their own language resulting in perhaps the most extensive cultural collaboration currently existing in Europe.

Rules:
1 The competition is open to photographers of all nationalities. The promoters of the competition are the six publishers.

2 All photographic material must be completed and unpublished in book form.

3 Material must be original and be presented as a book project. Projects conceived as anthologies are not acceptable. Copyright must belong to the photographer. The competitors can present the same project a maximum of twice.

4 For the 2005 edition all materials must be delivered, at the photographer’s risk, to the address of any of the Publishers listed. Entries will be accepted and must be received no later than 31st of January 2005, together with the application form and these competition rules signed for acceptance. An entry fee of ?25.00 – 40 Euros, if submitted from any country in Europe, and ?40.00 – 70 Euros from other continents, is payable as a contribution toward the costs of returning work. Work may be presented in one of the following forms

a) a book dummy plus a sample of original prints or transparencies;
b) a set of sequenced photocopies plus a sample of original prints;
c) a set of original prints, or transparencies (duplicates are acceptable).

Any items sent, including prints, should be no larger than cm 30 x 40, and must not weigh more than 2kg in total. The promoters reserve the right to make a surcharge to cover additional return postage costs for any submissions which exceed these limits.

The promoters are not responsible for any loss or damage to materials sent.

5 The 2005 Jury will consist of the six publishers-promoters and an external judge to be announced.

6 The winner will be notified as soon as a decision has been reached.

7 a) The winner will provide the publishers with original prints of the photographs within 30 days of notification of winning.

b) Upon the agreement of the winning photographer to accept the award all world-wide rights for the publication of the photographs in book form shall be passed to the publishers without any further formality. The winner shall indemnify the publishers against any infringements by the book or any part thereof of third parties’ rights.

d) As a consideration for the transfer provided in b above the winning photographer will receive a prize of 12,000 Euros to cover royalties for the first printing of up to10,000 copies and to cover the expenses of the photographer including the prints or transparencies necessary for the book production.

e) The photographer will receive for any copy of further print runs a royalty of 6% of the retail price of the book.
